Abstract

Fly ash is a by-product of coal combustion. Coal ash is a waste that produces a large amount of fly ash generated at the Coal Fired Power Plant throughout the year. Continuous ash production consequents in expansion of ash dumps. Coal ash also poses significant health threats. Cenosphere is one of the value-added materials that is found in coal fly ash. This study is to determine the characteristic of cenosphere in terms of chemical composition, particle size distribution, amorphousness, and surface morphology. In order to extract the cenosphere from the fly ash sample, the separation method used is the Wet Separator method (Floatation/Float and Sink Method). Cenospheres have good potential as sustainable material due it's the unique properties, where it can be used as an alternative material in many industrial applications. A better understanding of the cenosphere characteristic will have important implication for coal waste application and it will improve the development of sustainable materials application in industry.
